We have many of our patients asking us if Teeth Whitening in Dubai products, that can be purchased over the counter, actually give positive results. These patients are not very excited about the price that the dental clinic charges for an in-office custom bleaching tray and professional-strength bleach.
Many patient’s like this who come to us are looking for a cost effective and cheaper alternative to teeth whitening. While, there is nothing wrong with trying to save money, the question that many patients need to understand is that, do at-home teeth whitening products work and does it bring out the desired results?.
What our team of dentists at the Dental Clinic in Dubai tell our patients is that, home whitening products do work to a certain degree, but they’re not as effective as having teeth whitening in the dental office, as we use a very effective teeth whitening agents than the whitening products that are available over the counter.
However, in order to find out how effective home-teeth whitening options are, we decided to research the area. We went through many academic papers and reviewed a lot of research that was carried out on the effectiveness home teeth whitening and even Dental Cleaning. We did our best to look for the best available evidence on the topic. However, just as we thought we found many expert options, stating that, while home teeth whitening products do whiten your teeth, and their effectiveness of the whitening varies based on the strength of the product that is used.
There is no denying that at home teeth whitening options like trays and strips are the most effective at-home choices for dramatic whitening. Most trays and strips need to be worn at least 30 minutes a day until you get to the desired shade, which is a put-off for many people as opposed to in-office treatment, the disposable trays are made with generic molds designed for the average-size mouth, where once size does not fits all, for sure!. Whitening strips easily wrap around teeth, but it can slip and slide, making them ineffective.
Also, specific products for tooth whitening like toothpastes and toothbrushes brighten teeth a shade or two at most. Mouthwash, which is the latest product to enter the tooth whitening range, it can whoosh away only the most superficial stains, as is does not have contact with the teeth for very long. It’s the same when it comes to paint-on whiteners, which lets you apply the solution to specific teeth and spot-treat discolored cracks and chips on enamel. But since there is nothing that holds the solution to the tooth and it dilutes itself with the saliva, which makes it ineffective in the long run. At-home whitening is an option for anyone who has a healthy mouth and has regular dental checkups.
So, here’s the verdict, while at home teeth whitening products do actually work to get your teeth whiter, long term results can be found with professional in-office teeth whitening.
